Process vs. "Perfection" -(aka, progress...)
I've written a couple of show reviews, respectively, and have READ MANY others. I have been listening to this uniquely gifted, and transcendently symbiotic group of
TRUE ARTIST's since the early 70's, sneaking off to my own bedroom and stereo, with my sisters LP, (....that's VINYL you yougins')...;) double album, "Europe 72".
Today, the picture on the back of that "GEM", -( that funky Freezer Burnin' Boy) is pasted with acrylic Matt Medium, (for all you visual artist's out there), on my apt. Door ...... The reason I write that..... Like that ice cream cone, which remain's relatively unmelted for all time, remind's me that ultimately, (as the liltingly beautiful version of "He's Gone" which introduced me to the idea that there's really only one thing this uniquely gifted, and transcendently symbiotic group of TRUE ARTIST's taught us, that at the at the end of the day, the delight of it all is...."there's nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile ..."
So, some shows are Pearl's, other,'s - outright "GEMS", "The finest ever seen..." And it's ALL F'in HERE !!! So, if this show don't thrill ya', or 'take you to that special place', look for the next one, right here !!!! No, I don't work for Archive.org... I'm a disabled Educator, by edu., but I'm fortunately a fairly successful painter, poet, and lifelong fan. And rarely pick up a paintbrush, pencil, or pen - without this band, ..."that the Music never [stops]...."
And I am, well..... Grateful, ...for that

Its amazing how quickly the good ol' GD went from playing some of their best shows ever in 89-90 to this. Wow. I personally can't stomach the Vince keys or vocals as their terribleness over ride everybody else's efforts with sheer cheese that could make one's ears bleed. 47k DLs and no reviews until mine? I now know why after listening to this - move on, or back for that matter to better days when these guys made good music
